Extract from the drama 'Innocent Party' where a group of teenagers are affected by drugs. Here, the friends describe their reactions to Carlo's hospitalisation after taking ecstasy. Some have decided to carry on taking drugs and some have stopped drug use altogether. The unpredictability of drug use is mentioned and being 'unlucky' and having a bad experience is discussed.
Warning: Contains scenes of drug use.
This clip demonstrates to students that there is no way to predict who will be badly affected by drugs. It can also help to explain how ecstasy can affect the body which could lead to a class discussion. This is the fifth of six clips in this series.
